Diamond Viper V770 Ultra Review

Bundle



The retail version of the Viper V770 Ultra comes in a colorful box with a very cool picture of a fictional jet fighter launching a missle.  Just about everything you need to know about the card (features, benchmarks, bundled software, supported refresh rates, etc.) is listed on the box.

I found this rather interesting chart, which appears on the back of the box.  If you are familiar with 3dfx's buyout of STB, it's no secret that Diamond has bitter feelings against 3dfx as they claim that "Viper Annihilates Voodoo 3!"

Of course you get the Viper V770 Ultra graphics accelerator which has an AGP bus connection, the Ultra TNT2 chip running at a recommended clock speed of 150MHz (hidden by the fan and heatsink), eight 4MB memory modules speed rated at 5.5 ns with a recommended clock speed of 183MHz, a cooling fan with heatsink, and, as previously mentioned, no TV-Out:
